Tomorrow is the second design meeting for the waterfront project. For those that didn’t make it to the first presentation check out the video above to get up to speed on what was presented at the last event.
At the last meeting the design team asked the public where they want to be on the waterfront and what they want to do on the waterfront, using a dot exercise. They also asked other more open ended questions. Their presentation was interesting, especially when they described the different waterfront segments and the specific context of each segment. I felt this was the most interesting part and in my mind really helped to define the opportunities and challengers of each segment.
Event details below the jump.
Our February 17 kick-off event for the redesign of the Waterfront was a huge success. More than 1,000 people participated in the event and 2,000 comments were received on the future vision and potential uses of the new waterfront.
On May 19, design project lead, James Corner, will present first design directions for the future waterfront. Please mark your calendar and RSVP today!.
The event starts at 6:30, but be sure to come early for music, great views and sample tempting treats from some of Seattle’s popular mobile food vendors – Maximus/Minimus, Where ya at Matt, and Street Treats will be selling food from 5:00 – 6:30PM!
